. say you're lindsay graham and you have a town meeting, a lot of people are thinking is graham really with us? is he fighting the president to the wall the way we want him to? lindsay graham does have to be very concerned about getting primaried. everyone's talking about chuck hagel. i think back in their district the intensity, the people who demonstrate real interest, intensity and knowledge about the situation, are they the conservative base? for the most part for someone like lindsay graham, absolutely yes. i think that's key to what's happening here. >> all right, mr. crowley, let's talk some turkey. mike murphy has a post-op in time saying the white house has come to the shaky conclusion that the president's best tactic is continue the campaign theatrics and force the gop congress to bend to his will. he writes the president must abandon the silly campaign 3.0 stuff and face reality and since magic doors one lock the door to the votes "some beneficiaries pay more and change cpi," which is budgetary code for slyly lowering budget increases over time. what do you think of this str
concern? >> it's his supported of israel. he said to have made this speech and here is lindsay graham this morning on fox news sunday. >> allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office which i think would be breathtaking if he said that to have such a view. i got a letter back in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that. and the letter said he did not recall saying that and disavows the statement. >> unless new information comes to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be asked. >> harris: what is the white house saying about this whole episode so far for the hagel nomination? >> president said in a google appearance that much of the talk about benz, many questions were asked about that, benghazi. congress is running out of questions. the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary and john brennan to head the c.i.a. are both hanging in the balance. the chief of staff says that
his financial disclosures. >> let me play what snasht lindsay graham has said about chuck hagel and he is willing to fight until the very end. let's play it please. >> you know that the debate on chuck hagel is not over, it has not been serious and we do not have the information we need and i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through. i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you, absolutely. you're not going to get away with not answering basic questions. >> that is a man that is not ready to give up, i'm going to hilt you and keep hitting you, it went from iran to israel, to benghazi, chuck hagel was not a part of the administration during benghazi. we have seen panetta and others testify. is this a legitimate point that this is pay back for the surge and that lindsay graham and senator john mccain have decided somehow in their minds they're doing this. >> i don't think it's pay back for the surge, i think this is pay back for a republican willing to serve in a democratic administration. no matter what you call this, filibuster or otherwise, i think it's at odds with the con
and the upper chamber. >> but he has such a strong personal relationship with lindsay graham, and lindsay graham is so personally invested in his 2014 re-election and being seen as the guy who is fighting the obama administration on this, so i kind of feel like -- it's just a guess, but my thought is that graham will eventually drop it. that will allow mccain to drop it. that will allow them to follow suit. then you have a new precedent. let's say you get to the floor with this vote, and it's 55-45 or 57-43. a party line vote is not entirely new, but that's close to a new phenomenon too for defense secretary for a cabinet nominee, and if that becomes the new rule for cabinet nominees going forward, what happens when the next president comes along and his or her party does not control the senate. if that's the new norm that's established, you have a big problem there. >> oh. >> no different from the senate. remember, john mccain was the guy who negotiated that deal to stop the nuclear option before? remember, he was the one that stood in the way of the very idea of filibustering cabinet nominees,
in turmoil, and iran working to acquire nuclear weapons south carolina republican lindsay graham says this is the wrong time for cutbacks. >> i think we should in a bipartisan fashion stop sequestration before in the words of the secretary of defense t destroys the pentagon. >> now if there is any summer lining in this mess t is that the cuts would phase in gradually. but if the two party kos find agreement after a few weeks or even months, a lot of the damage could probably on undone. jeff? >> jeff: bill plante, thank you. thousands 6 environmental activists marched in washington today to protest plans for the keystone xl oil pipeline. if it gets government approval keystone would carry oil from canada to refineries in texas. the pipeline would create 20,000 jobs but opponents say that the environmental risk is too great. it is tax season and the ils is battling a rising tide of refund fraud cases caused by identity theft. a sweep last month netted 109 arrests and 189 indictments for a crime that could cost the country $21 billion over the next five years. seth doa ne has a case in p
and give lindsay graham more of what he wants if not all of what he wants, more of what he wants as it relates to the specific timeline on benghazi, and then almost certainly the hagel nomination goes forward, or we will not and to be honest, andrea, the way that politics works, i'm not sure that if there isn't -- harry weed comes out and says there's going to be a vote foam, if they put it off, they go out of session for a week and come back. i don't know if chuck hagel is able politically only, politically speaking only, to survive that. i think that's the calculation the white house is making right now as if you don't give in in some regard you clearly imperil chuck hagel's no, ma'am nation. not to say you doom it, but you imperil it because it makes that 60 votes harder to get to. if have you to put it off, politics being -- politics as a vacuum, you'll have more and more doubt flood in the longer you delay thee thipgsz. they know all this, and i think they'll probably try to decide. should they give something to lindsey graham, and what should it be? >> is there much to give
political cause than help the president. >> you have lindsay graham, john mccain and marco rubio, someone who tried in fact last year, couldn't get mitt romney to sign off on a plan and then the president came in with the dream act and trumped all of them. so there is some momentum now on the republican side on that. what about guns? >> guns, that's the sticking point. you look at that through -- even in the early 1970s, richard nixon said privately if it were up to him i would outlaw, he said, every pistol in the country. he was strongly for gun control, though he didn't do much about that in public. >> michael beschloss, it's always great to have your perspective. >> thank you. >> call it a marsupial flash mob. the first round of play at the women's australian open was interrupted incredibly thursday by a herd -- is that the correct term -- a herd of galloping kangaroos. they didn't tear up the green, we're told. [ woman ] we had two tiny reasons to get our adt security system. and one really big reason -- the house next door. our neighbor's house was broken into. luckily, her family wa
's a very delicate dance they've got to do here. and that's what rubio, mccain, lindsay graham, are doing with their proposal here. and they're getting hammered for it, to a large extent. and that's what i'm a little worried about, is rubio, because he's interested in 2016, is going to look for any excuse to walk away from this and say, well, i tried. there is a suspicion. if i can interpret what rand paul is saying into english, they have a fear that the democrats just want to use this as an issue to keep the latinos in their camp and not actually have an immigration deal, appear to have an immigration deal and not have one. so they can continue to solidify the latinos. >> dana, i guess the other way of looking at this from the white house is a stand point of this has to be adversarial when it comes to rubio's role in this. because he has sort of separated himself from what has been the republican mainstream on immigration for the last half decade or so, really going out on a limb. and if you look at the psychology of today's republican party, it's not let's team up with obama, let's giv
